Art Deco Diamond Ring
This is a beautiful early 1900's diamond ring. The 18kt white gold setting features geometric detailing on the shoulders and delicate hand engraving on the sides. The cutouts on the gallery allow plenty of light to reflect through the diamonds resulting in plenty of fire and scintillation from the center stone. The center diamond measure .50 carats (5.1mm) and is accented by 4 smaller .015 carat (1.5mm) diamonds. The center stone features a flat culet (point on the very bottom of the stone) indicating it was likely cut in the late 1800's and then set into this ring decades later. The center stone is graded Color G and Clarity VS2. The clarity grade is a result of an indented natural feature on the top of the stone near the edge. It is difficult to see with the unaided eye but visible under 10x magnification. The top of the ring measures 6mm from the finger. This ring is a size 7.5 and weighs 2.2 grams. The shoulders measure 3mm and taper to 1.3mm at the bottom of the band. The band is stamped with an 18kt alloy mark. This ring is beautiful alone but it also has flush sides that would allow it to easily be worn with an additional band.
